Red Velvet Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Cake


Every year for Valentines Day my husband makes me a special dinner and uses a recipe that he has never tried before.  I absolutely love it and look forward to it every year!  We have also somehow created a new tradition with my three year old son.  He was asking me what a cupid was and I explained to him that a cupid was like a special kind of baby/angel that flew around on Valentines Day and shot people with arrows to make them fall in love and delivered boxes of Chocolate to good boys and girls on Valentines day.  So he got very excited thinking that if he was a good boy the Cupid would hide a box of chocolate for him on Valentines Day.  Lol  now he is always telling me I need to be good so the Cupid will come.  It is kind of like a cross between Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, but he brings it up several times a day and even asks me to tell him the story of the Cupid when he goes to sleep at night.  I don’t know how this happened! Anyway it is a new Valentines tradition we have lol! What are some of your Valentines Day traditions?

Eat it till it’s gone? Throw it away? The perfect answer was to make this Butterfinger brownie ice cream cake and use up all the Halloween Candy once and for all!
